House Cleaning - Three Ways To Finding The Time
It's always a challenge finding time to clean my house. Seems the hours, days and weeks just fly by, so much to do, so little time. Here are three ways to fit in your house cleaning.
1. Schedule it in. We all make appointments, whether it is for ourselves or someone else. Before we set up an appointment we check our schedules, making sure we find the best time. Why not schedule a house cleaning appointment. Pick a time once a week and make that a regular appointment, if we need to cancel be sure to reschedule it for that week. I find that since I keep up with cleaning once a week, it doesn't take me as long and there isn't much dust.
2. One room a day. Instead of choosing one day a week to clean, try cleaning one room a day. Our house won't be clean at once, but by the end of the week the whole house will be cleaned. Monday comes and we are starting again. Sometimes when I'm cooking and have something in the oven, I'll do a quick wipe down of all the counters. While the kids are in the tub, I wipe down the bathroom and clean the toilet.
3. Hand off a room. If there are other people living in the house and are old enough to take on responsibility, then hand off a room. We can either have them choose or we can choose the room for them. Let them help with the cleaning and I don't think asking for help with "one" room in the house is asking too much. Once we have less rooms to clean, the easier it is to get the rest of the house done.

Time Management Lessons from a 3 Year Old
Zak is my three-year old godson. He is the apple of my eye along with his sisters Carley and Brenna. I was watching him the other day as he was preparing to assume a self-proclaimed role of 'Master of the Universe' while playing a game with some of his friends. I marveled at how prepared he was and how his plan included alternatives if there were any 'problems' in the scheme of things. He was, in fact, more focused on achieving his goal than just about anyone I've ever seen.

24 Time Management Tips
Where does your time go? We all know we are busy, yet we feel behind and don't get to do the things we really want to do.
You Cant Buy Time
Our daily lives are inundated with a crammed to-do list. We are often rushing throughout our day trying to keep up with ourselves. Although technology has improved and simplified our lives, we are as pressed for time as past generations. Often your day seems so full, and you are so pressed for time that it is impossible to get in all there is to do, and yet a little quiet thinking will show that the important things can be easily put into two thirds of the day, and the remaining third is free for rest, or play, or both. You can feel normally pressed for time; and because of this pressure you can arrange in your mind what best to leave undone, and so relieve the pressure. If one thing seems as important to do as another you can make up your mind that of course you can only do what you have time for, and the remainder must go. You cannot do what you have time to do so well if you are worrying about what you have no time for.
Self Improvement and Prioritising
The ability to be able to set priorities and deal with our most important tasks first is an essential skill for self improvement and achieving results. We are all busy and there are many demands on our time and it is very easy to be distracted by other people and events. We may feel we have so many things to do that we don't know even where to start.

Time Management - Keeping a Clean Desk
I have worked with so many people over the years that have made me wonder how on earth they can work at their desk when everything that was in their drawers and in their filing cabinets have ended up in piles on top of their keyboard. One co-worker of mine couldn't remember what colour the top of his desk was! I had to say something, but when I did, he told me that he knew where everything was and needed all that paperwork for different projects he was working on.
